The Polaris Shortlist has been announced, so I’ll be going over each group in more detail over the next few days. For right now, the list is as follows:
Godspeed You Black Emperor! – Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!
Zaki Ibrahim – Every Opposite
Metric – Synthetica
METZ – METZ
Purity Ring – Shrines
Colin Stetson – New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light
Tegan and Sara – Heartthrob
A Tribe Called Red – Nation II Nation
Whitehorse – The Fate Of The World Depends On This Kiss
Young Galaxy – Ultramarine
I’ll have more thoughts on each of these albums over the next little bit. Stay tuned. Or don’t. I’m not your boss.
